Performance reviews: How SMU, East Carolina compare in non-conference play

Non-conference, or out-of-conference (OOC), performance reviews for SMU and East Carolina heading into their American Athletic Conference matchup Saturday on ASN:
SMU (11-3)
Their length across the board can be a nightmare for opponents. Will PG play haunt Tim Jankovich's team in big game/late game situations?

  • OOC record: 10-3

  • Best wins: Beat Pitt 76-67 and Stanford 72-49

  • Top players: Semi Ojeleye, Ben Moore, Shake Milton, Sterling Brown


OOC national ranks:

  • No. 13 Scoring defense (59.8 PPG)

  • No. 39 Defensive FG% (38.8%)

  • No. 7 Rebound margin (+11.1 RPG)

  • No. 56 A/TO ratio (1.29/1)

  • No. 18 PF/game (15.5)

  • No. 32 Offensive RPG (13.1)


EAST CAROLINA (8-5 UPDATE)
My sleeper pick has experience and a defense worthy of a top half American team. This team is good enough to earn respect!

  • OOC record: 8-5

  • Best win: Beat Air Force 70-63

  • Top players: Andre Washington, Caleb White, Kentrell Barkley, BJ Tyson


OOC national ranks:

  • No. 12 FG% defense (37.2%)
